AHRQ’s Safety Program for Nursing Homes: On-Time Preventable Hospital and Emergency Department Visits

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) created On-Time Preventable Hospital and Emergency Department Visits to help nursing homes with electronic medical records identify residents at risk for events that could lead to a hospital visit. The tools are designed to help a multidisciplinary nursing home team prevent hospital and emergency department visits that can be avoided with good preventive care.
